General Anim8or Forum / Re: Normal maps
« on: June 28, 2008, 07:51:00 pm »
Anim8or requires an heightmap from the user for bumpmapping,but as soon as
it's loaded,the heightmap is converted in a normalmap used for rendering .

I think he is also referring to Winchester and Colby,respectively analyst
and quality control supervisor.I wonder if they are still involved in the Anim8or

They are more the behind the scene type of guy,explaining why we didn't
have news from them in a long time.

You can export a static object as C code.(no animation)

There's a  C export function native to Anim8or. Menu: Object/Export.

Also , a C export script that you could tailor to your needs.See the script
page of the site.

On the Resources page of the site,you'll find a C header file,plus
an example of an OpenGl rendering program.

ASL Scripts / Re: How to get full texture filename?
« on: June 10, 2008, 01:09:45 am »
From the script spec:
Texture Type

struct texture {
    string name;       // texture’s name
    int Marked;        // Marked flag, 1 or 0
    const int CubeMap; // 1 if a Cube Map, else 0
    int InvertImage;   // invert image flag, 1 or 0
    string GetFileName(void);
    string GetCubeMapFileName(int face);
    int SetFileName(string name);
    int SetCubeMapFileName(string name, int face);

He's probably using the name member.
Try the "string GetFileName(void)" one.You should get the extension
and the directory also if my memory doesn't fail me.

The spec is not up to date.The string is now used.

C:corner S:smooth T:step or threshold
Another point is added if T:step or threshold is used.

If you need the info,I think a cubic interpolation
curve is used.


ASL Scripts / Re: Diamond parametric shape released

As far as I know,here's how it is:
Anim8or is written in C++.I would guess around 400,000 lines of code.
The win32 API is used for the msg boxes and the menu at the top of the
window.The OpenGl API is used for rendering the viewport(working
view) and the buttons on the left and top.

General Anim8or Forum / Re: can't select points on a sphere
« on: May 03, 2008, 03:47:53 am »
You've created a primitive.It can't be modified that way
unless you convert it to a mesh.

Select the sphere.
Menu:Build. Use the Convert to mesh function.

« on: April 29, 2008, 04:57:00 am »
Last year,a user asked if he could use a targa image with an alpha
channel as a reference image.I made a suggestion that seemed
to help.Maybe it could be helpful to you.

Anim8or v0.98 Discussion Forum / Re: Too many points exporting 3ds
« on: April 28, 2008, 02:45:24 pm »
The 3DS format uses a 2 byte word for the number of vertex,creating
this limitation.

You could split your mesh in 2 using the detach function,but this is
probably unacceptable.

So, have a look at Terranim8or decimation function.(link on the
Resource page of the site) It allows to reduce the number of triangle,
therefore the number of vertex of a mesh with the less possible lost
of quality.Lets hope you don't exceed 65535 too much.

Maybe the insert bone tool could help.It's under the Build menu.

Obj format is also available.

If you want to triangulate inside Anim8or,I wrote such a script:

Anim8or v0.98 Discussion Forum / Re: Faster Renderer!!
« on: April 14, 2008, 11:14:18 pm »
0.97 Preview is a beta version,released to be tested by users
to find bugs allowing Steve to make the necessary corrections.
The Art renderer is in development now.

I suggest you read the introduction text on the v0.97 page
of the site (link on the left) and if you can't deal with a beta
version,you should revert back to a stable version 0.95 or
even 0.96.

General Anim8or Forum / Re: lower face "poly" count
« on: April 14, 2008, 03:55:08 pm »
If you really want to reduce the poly count,there's a
merge face function under the Edit menu in Point Edit Mode.
If you want to reduce the burden of rendering either on a
videocard or a software renderer then what you need is to
reduce the triangle count.Each face or poly is made of 1
or multiple triangle.Terranim8or has a decimator function
to lower the # of triangle.(link on the Resources page of the site)
